A native of South Louisiana, Lisa Scott has spent much of her life on the back of her husband’s shrimp boat helping with the family business and enjoying the adventure. She developed an appreciation and a keen eye for the beautiful creatures and scenery in the bayou country. A year and a half ago, she began capturing and sharing her amazing encounters in photography.
Like many Louisiana families, the Gulf oil spill and recent hurricanes impacted their livelihoods. Realizing her unique talents, Lisa’s friends and family encouraged her to sell her photographs as a way to generate additional income for their household. Much to her surprise, others enjoy her photos as much as the loves taking them. They began buying her pictures and other items with her photos on them at local businesses and craft fairs.
Lisa developed her own website and her photographs are now available on the Gulf Coast Marketplace. The mission of The Gulf Coast Marketplace is to contribute to community recovery by providing opportunities for economic growth and financial independence to individuals and families, especially those impacted by disaster.
